DEDICATION: --
COVER TEXT:
Here is high fidelity fiction at Philip José Farmer's storytelling best. It's a vibrant, distractingly different tale of three centuries into the future. And as you read you'll have a vague, uneasy feeling that it's all taking place somewhere in the unexplored parts of the universe, even today.
Enslaved by a triangular powered despotism — one lone man sets his sights to the Six Bright Stars and eventual freedom of his world.
(Aegypan Press)
